All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records
Films + Exhibitions

Co-presented with Rooftop Cinema

Tower Records was, fittingly, a towering presence in an economic sense and its cultural impact was greater still. It was a place where people communed over music – a haven for obsessives and weirdos.

In 1999, it grossed one billion dollars. That same year Napster was unleashed on the record industry and Tower Records began an unstoppable decline. And while the internet was part of the fall, it’s only one part of the whole story. Director Colin Hanks, along with interviewees Tower Records founder, Russ Solomon, Elton John, Chuck D and more, helps to fill those blanks in this wild, wistful documentary.
